    Toro CCR 1000 / HSK600

    Earlier this winter I acquired an old Toro 2 cycle snow thrower. After making a few repairs the machine works really well considering it's only 3HP. The one thing that has stumped me is... No matter how cold the units right up in a pull or two. After some use (with load) if you shut it off it...

    Pontiac GTP L67 3800 PP 5w30 5.4k

    A little background, this engine has for years had slight coolant seepage (lower gaskets). In mid 2010 the vehicle usage had changed from a daily driver to a short tripper. In early 2013 the upper manifold gasket developed a vacuum leak so at this time I did lower intake gaskets and buttoned...

    Lincoln Aviator Issue

    Ok guys this one has me stumped. Over the summer my 03 Aviator start throw codes for misfires (mostly random misfire). I have gone threw this issue with Ford COP I ordered 8 new Accel Coils. Issue was still present, codes P0300, P0316. The truck was low on power also, after weeks of data logging...

    Latest run of PP. Only difference in this sample for others is this is the first analysis NOT using Dexcool, current fill is Prestone All-Makes-All-Models after I replaced the water pump and coolant elbow. System was throughly flushed refilled and GM coolant tablets added. <div...

    P1406

    P1406 EGR pintle position I'm battling a P1406 in my Pontiac for about 1.5 month now. At first the SES came on once or twice and went off it self after a few restarts. Within the next couple weeks it appeared to happen more often. I removed the EGR and cleaned it, it didn't appear too dirty for...

    Ignition Modules??

    I have a 5 year old craftsman leaf blower that had a bad coil. I also had a older blower that I removed the coil to use in the other blower. It had a different part number although it looks to be physically the same. Are coils interchangeable? The reason I ask, after putting everything back...

    97 Pontiac GTP L67 3800, GC 0w30 4.4k

    Latest and last fill of GC. There was a missing interval that I did not sample due to trying to eliminate a lean condition DTC that was periodically popping up. Oil was changed 1 week after problem (various small vacuum leaks) was resolved. Coolant leak has subsided, haven't added any more. For...

    97 Pontiac GTP L67 3800, GC 0w30 4.3k

    Same old story here. Slight coolant leak, next interval will tell the tale on where this is heading. Interesting that coolant went up and lead went down. O2 sensor changed 1k into this interval due to a lean condition code, all has been well since then. For all those that comment, notice the...

    B&S 18HP Intek

    I have a 3 year old Intek single cylinder that see's ~50 hours a year. I have been changing the oil and filter yearly with M1 5w30 and have had very little if any oil consumption. I week ago I was mowing on a hot day and after about 20 minutes I got a big puff of oil smoke and it almost...

    97 Pontiac GTP L67 3800, GC 0w30 4.6k

    We still found signs of anti-freeze (see potassium & sodium) in the oil but level did come down. However, lead from bearings almost doubled and it may due to the coolant. Or, it may be from a particle streak through the bearings. If the latter is the case, lead will decline in the next sample...

    2003 Lincoln Aviator 4.6L 32V 4.5K MC 5w20

    Nothing unusual showed up in the first sample from your Aviator. Universal averages for the type are based on an oil run of ~4,200 miles. This oil was in use longer than that and wear matched up nicely. 5,000-5,500 miles shouldn't be too many to run the next oil. The trace of fuel is hardly a...

    97 Pontiac GTP L67 3800, M1 5w30 4.8k

    800 miles into this interval plugs and wires were changes due to a miss in boost due to me checking a couple of plugs and fubaring a wire or two. Intake is starting to leak and GM tabs were added at the end of this interval. Oil was changed with GC and coolant level will be monitored closely...
